He added that this operation came 24 hours after another operation carried out by the group’s forces on the same targets using drones.
The Israeli army announced earlier – yesterday, Tuesday – the interception of a surface-to-surface missile that it said was apparently launched from Yemen towards the city of Eilat on the Red Sea coast, according to what the official broadcasting authority reported.
In a related context, the leader of the Houthi group threatened Israeli ships in the Red Sea and Bab al-Mandab.
Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi said, in a televised speech yesterday evening, Tuesday, that “members of the missile force and drone aircraft carried out operations that struck Israeli targets… and our planning will continue for additional operations on whatever targets we can obtain.”
The Houthi leader threatened, saying, “We will destroy the Israeli enemy’s ships in the Red Sea and attack them. At whatever level our hands reach, we will not hesitate to target them.”
He added, “Since the beginning of the events in Palestine, we have received threatening and enticing messages from the American side, all of which we did not care about,” as he put it.
This is the first speech by the Houthi leader since his group began announcing the implementation of missile and drone operations against Israel.
On October 31, the Houthi group announced for the first time that it had targeted Israel with a large number of drones and missiles. It was followed by several similar announcements.
After the Israeli aggression on Gaza on October 7, the Houthi group, which controls several Yemeni governorates – including the capital, Sanaa – announced its support for the Palestinian resistance against Israel.
For 40 days, the Israeli army has been waging war on… Gaza During which more than 11,000 Palestinians were martyred, most of them women and children, in addition to about 30,000 wounded and massive destruction in residential neighborhoods, vital facilities, and hospitals.
